Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Sometimes the simple recipes are the best.  This is from Allrecipes.  Many people added a cut up lemon inside, and several cloves of garlic.


1 (3-4 pound) whole chicken, rinsed
salt and pepper to taste
1 small onion, quartered
1/4 cup chopped fresh rosemary


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Stuff with the onion and rosemary. Place chicken in a 9x13 inch baking dish or roasting dish, lined with foil for easier clean up.
Roast in the preheated oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the bird.   I always check with an instant read meat thermometer at 1 hour, and then continue cooking if necessary.  (20-25 min/lb is usually about right).

If I were to actually add the potatoes like wannabenana said...would it change the cooking temp or time? I am not very...chefly inclined(? lol!) I LOVE Rosemary anything...Have you ever had the Mixed Grill from Olive Garden. Its just a couple of skewers, one chicken, one steak. They're both smothered in this delicious rosemary sauce and served with peppers and potatoes....SOOOO delicious! I would love to learn how to make that sauce...but I'm afraid I will ruin it lol
